Earlier today. I received this text message from one of our younger residents – it speaks volumes and you can see a transcript below. It was followed by a longer conversation about the CWaC/Tarporley Ward Community Transport Survey and also the Utkinton and Cotebrook Neighbourhood Plan. The texter’s details are withheld by agreement.
“Message received Monday 14th January 2018
Hi, I live in Utkinton, I’m messaging you regarding a public bus going through Utkinton which we could get to places even if it was simply just to Tarporley, on weekends me and a couple other young citizens would like this , it would improve Utkinton social aspects and may gain profits for the future.
Hello, many thanks for this message. I am afraid that the provision for public transport through Utkinton or Cotebrook is nil at the weekend. Even during the week we have to rely on the community transport that runs between 09:30 and 14:30 Monday to Friday. This method requires you to subscribe to one of these services and then you can only travel by booking 24 hours in advance.
So, I am sorry to say that it is not possible.”
